Heritage Shiraz 2007

Just inhale to savor the wide range of flavor notes in this deep purple wine, a blend of the heritage Australian Shiraz and the French Hermitage Syrah grapes that we have planted on our Estate Vineyard.

This deep, dense, long-living wine is made exclusively from Shiraz/Syrah as intense as many a Rhône Hermitage, showing rich, plumb and dark liquorice-chocolate on the nose with a slight tobacco and lingering toffee flavor on the palate, all the while with soft background notes of black pepper.

Plenty of tannin to foster aging, the wine is still not too aggressive to be savored immediately, but will definitely benefit from some more time in the bottle.

This smooth, rich wine will work well with most foods allowing you to add your own special blend of herbs and spices. Image a roasted pork loin well seasoned with garlic and onions. Try this with bratwurst, spicy lamb dishes and cold meats with chutney but for a special treat pair it with BarBQ pork spare ribs with a smokey BarBQ sauce.

An utterly majestic Shiraz, sleek and seamless, with a structure embracing both expressiveness and grace. The intensity of fresh blueberry and plum fruit holds attention until the nuances kick in, offering glints of exotic spice, coffee, cocoa, bay leaf and mint.

Shows tremendous presence without a lot of weight, the smooth silky tannin, while present is not even close to getting in the way.

A very elegant Shiraz from the Williamson Estate in Dry Creek Valley.

The vineyard consists of Australian Shiraz and French Hermitage clones sustainably farmed to produce low yields of the finest quality fruit.

We harvested at optimum ripeness and took the fruit through several days of pre-fermentation maceration followed by fermentation and then thirty days of post-ferment maceration to encourage the berries to surrender all their flavor.

The wine is made from only free run juice so the delicate flavors were preserved.
